Replacement latch part needed

A quick learner from Winston, Ga says:

I am trying to identify the latch. However, I don't know how it comes out as they are very brittle. I have broken some of the good ones trying to remove them. What I need are flush mount replacements, but there are no place for the screws to screw in b/c of the big slot in the center. Do you sell ones that screw to the side? If so, does the old one have to be removed b/c it sticks up?

Your tilt latch looks very similar to our 26-393. Look this pair over and let me know if you agree.

These don't screw in, they just plug in. I don't think we carry anything that works how you describe. These have to plug into a very specifically sized slot, so you don't really have a lot of room to use a substitute. You are pretty much stuck using this type of latch, at least for this sash.

The video below explains how these install.
